Twitter CEO Elon Musk appeared Sunday to criticize Dr. Anthony Fauci, the face of America’s pandemic response, as he ends his five-decades-long tenure as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
Musk tweeted Sunday “My pronouns are prosecute/Fauci.”
Musk made the remark in a tweet as House Republicans, who take control next month of the chamber, says they’ll investigate Fauci’s knowledge of so-called gain-of-function research at the lab in Wuhan, China, the city in which COVID-19 was first detected.
Former CIA Director John O. Brennan appeared to think the tweet was an attack, replying, “Dr. Fauci is a national hero who will be remembered for generations to come for his innate goodness & many contributions to public health Despite your business success, you will be remembered most for fueling public hate & divisions. You may have money, but you have no class.”
